Having survived multi-backed planetary beasts and buttock-facilitated time travel, the FUTURAMA gang is back for its third round of feature-length fun. In BENDER'S GAME, Earth's gas prices are out of this world, which means Fry, Leela, and the rest of the crew of the Planet Express delivery company are, too...when they embark on a mission to harvest resources from the world's only dark-matter mine, that is. What they find in their subterranean safari, though, is a world that's less flying cars and robot-human unity and more dungeons and dragons. But why do all the drunken knights who populate this majestic land look so much like Bender? BENDER'S GAME once again captures the blend of whip-smart satire, low-brow humor, and unbounded imagination that's been a hallmark of FUTURAMA since creator Matt Groening's (THE SIMPSONS) original series first hit the air.
With fuel prices skyrocketing, the Planet Express crew sets off on a dangerous mission: to infiltrate the world's only dark-matter mine, source of all spaceship fuel. But deep beneath the surface lies a far stranger place... a medieval land of dragons and sorcery and intoxicated knights who look suspiciously like Bender. So park your hover-car and saddle up your unicorn for Futurama's grandest adventure yet: BENDER'S GAME!
3 stars out of 5 -- "[This] feature is chockful of satirical sci-fi goodness..." (Total Film)
4 stars out of 5 -- "The freedom from a more traditional narrative structure allows for more excellent gags at a faster rate, while the fantasy genre makes for a prime and very funny target." (Empire)
